Birchbox Teen Vogue - and Essie Giveaway!

Edit: Since more than 5 people commented, I WILL be including the Essie in my giveaway! Only 20 more followers until I put it up!

 I got my first Birchbox this last week, and it was the special Teen Vogue box! Birchbox is a monthly beauty box subscription for $10 a month, and if you review the products in your box every month you get 40-50 points + the 10 for the box that month. Every 100 points is worth $10 at Birchbox's online shop! It's a great deal since you're essentially getting each box for $4-5 if you end up using your points in their shop. Sign up here if you want to join!

I ended up getting :
1. Essie Luxeffects in Set in Stones Full size - $8
2.  Tarte LipSurgance in Amused Full size - $24
3. Shiseido Oil-control Blotting Papers - Sample size of 10, so valued at $1.8
4. Twistband Hairtie in Red - One is $3 I believe?
5. Sample of Annic Goutal's Petite Cherie perfume. I don't give perfume samples values even though I love this scent!

Total Value = around $37

 I haven't tried the LipSurgence yet, but this is the swatch, as you can see it's almost the same color as the Birchbox Pink tissue paper :)

I know all of you are wondering about my post title, I do NOT like glitter! So i'm going to be including the Essie Nail polish in my giveaway (once I get 60 followers). But only if at least 5 people comment on this post and express interest in this! Otherwise i'll trade it on the forum.

Remember, sign up here if you want to join their monthly beauty box program!

I paid for this box on my own, and these reviews are strictly of my own desire.


  1. Actually that glitter polish was the one that catched my eye haha ^^ I think it looks awesome :P I wish Birchbox would post to Finland too....

    1. Awww! I'll check how much it costs to send something to Finland, you never know, I may make my giveaway international :)

  2. Give away! Give away! I want to winnn, haha. Set in Stones is on my polish wish list. :)

    1. Just 2 more comments and i'll officially add it to my giveaway list!! I'm more than halfway to my 60 follower goal as well :) So stay tuned!

  3. I had no idea that Birchbox did that points system! I had been wondering if I should sign up as it's been getting a lot of mixed reviews the pass few months, but that is a very nice incentive! LOL I can't believe the Essie Luxeffects was in your box! I have been wanting that for ages but I think $8 is a bit too much for nail polish :/

    1. I agree, that's quite expensive, but their polish lasts forever! I think it's even better than Julep's to be honest.

      Stay tuned, once I reach 60 followers (halfway there!) I'll probably include it in my giveaway, you may be the lucky winner!

  4. Birchbox would be something similar to Glossybox in the U.K :) I love glitter nail polishes,not on their own but over a matte colour :)


  5. Love beauty boxes!Yet to get a higher end nail varnish in one though!

    Please check out my blog and subscribe if you like it! Will make my day...

  11. AHH!!! I requested for the teen vogue box and I am not sure what happened but I got the regular box...and I hate to say it but the contents were seriously for a much more older person. Visiting from the blog hop, and hope you'll stop by, would you like to follow each other?

  12. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I love this polish!! I am so glad I found you on!


  13. OMG! I want that Essie nail polish!!!!!!! drool!!!!!!!!
    Now following your blog!!!!



  14. That Tarte lip tint looks like a pretty shade. But the Essie polish would be the item I'd be immediately gravitating to if I received this box :)

  15. It looks like you got a really good box this month - the essie and tarte would have done it for me. Too bad Birchbox doesn't ship to Canada (*sigh*). Would love to see stuff like that in one of my Canadian sample boxes.
